Calling all Cinema Studies Ducks! Throw Your O and Make the Day!

Make a gift to Cinema Studies! 

Join us May 18th for the 2nd annual #DucksGive

#DucksGive is the University of Oregon’s annual giving day, taking place on May 18, 2017. It’s an opportunity for all Duck supporters to join together to continue the excellence of this university.

Last year, over 1,500 Ducks made a gift, and this year we know 1,876 Ducks will step up to honor the year the University of Oregon was founded.

 

What makes #DucksGive?

Ducks give because we believe in the power of research. Because we know that education can be transformative. Because when the best and the brightest meet in one place, extraordinary things can happen. When Ducks work together, the sum of our efforts is far greater than what we can achieve alone.

How does your gift impact Cinema Studies students?

A gift to Cinema Studies has the ability to touch every one of our students – from creating student scholarships, to hosting industry professionals and international scholars who enrich the student experience, to providing cutting-edge equipment and technology.  We appreciate your interest and support!

Be part of the #DucksGive movement!

This is your opportunity to Throw Your O and Make the Day. On May 18, log on and Throw Your O by showing your support, which can Make the Day for UO students, faculty, staff, and this campus!

Chevalier (2015)

105 Minutes.  Not Rated.  In Greek with English Subtitles.

Chevalier is set in the middle of the Aegean Sea, on a luxury yacht, where six men on a fishing trip decide to play a game. During this game, things will be compared, measured and blood will be tested. Friends will become rivals, but at the end of the voyage, when the game is over, the winner will wear the victorious signet ring: the “Chevalier.”  Chevalier is directed by Athina Rachel Tsangari and stars Yorgos Kendros, Panos Koronis, Vangelis Mourikis, Makis Papadimitriou, Yorgos Pirpassopoulos, and Sakis Rouvas.  Chevalier was the official selection at the Locarno Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, New York Film Festival, San Francisco International Film Festival and was the Greek entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 2017 Academy Awards®.

Meet the Filmmaker:  Athina Rachel Tsangari

Athina Rachel Tsangari holds a B.A. from the University of Thessaloniki, Greece, an M.A. in Performance Studies from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, and an MFA in Film Directing from the University of Texas, Austin. Through a small role in Richard Linklater’s seminal film Slacker (1991), Tsangari was introduced to cinema and since the mid-nineties has been steadily producing original work as a director, producer, and production designer.

Tsangari’s first short film, Fit, was a finalist in the Student Academy Awards. Her first feature, The Slow Business of Going, a sci-fi film shot in nine cities across the world on a small budget, is now in the permanent film collection of the MoMA. Her second feature, Attenberg, premiered in the main competition at the 2010 Venice Film Festival, where it won the Best Actress Award for its lead, Ariane Labed.

Attenberg (2010)

2010 – 95 Minutes – Not Rated – In Greek with English Subtitles

Greece’s Official Entry for the Academy Awards®, Attenberg is a wonderfully deadpan, surprisingly touching coming-of-age story. 23-year-old Marina lives in a small, factory town by the sea where she passes her time watching Sir David Attenborough’s nature programs, listening to the proto-punk songs of Suicide, goofing with her only friend Bella, and tending to her ailing father. When a visiting engineer comes to town, the two form a tentative relationship that pushes Marina into contact with the strange and complex world of adulthood. Critically acclaimed, Attenberg is a sincere and humorous look at life’s defining moments.  Attenberg is directed by Athina Rachel Tsangari and stars Ariane Labed (winner Best Actress Venice International Film Festival), Vangelis Mourikis, Evangelia Randou, Yorgos Lanthimos (Academy Award®-nominated Dogtooth director).  Attenberg was the official selection at Sundance Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, San Francisco International Film Festival, Rotterdam International Film Festival, New Directors/New Films Film Festival, BFI London Film Festival, AFI Film Festival.

“Black Girl in Suburbia” Film Screenings and Panel Discussions

Apr 13, 5:30 pmApr 14, 5:00 pm
Categories: [] []

A Documentary by Melissa Lowery

After a screening of her award-winning documentary Black Girl in Suburbia, Melissa Lowery joins a panel of UO faculty (Thursday) and undergraduate students (Friday) to discuss what racial inclusivity means at predominantly white institutions—from K-12 schools to college classrooms. What classroom experiences support—and undermine—a sense of belonging and academic achievement for the students of color in our classrooms? How do faculty create conditions in which it’s possible for students to learn from one another across differences and allow for shifts in students’ perspectives?

These conversations are part of a two-day symposium focused on Lowery’s 55-minute documentary film, which explores the experience of Black women who grew up in predominantly white communities around Oregon. Join us for this special chance to discuss the racial dynamics that shape academic environments in dialogues that will center the voices and experiences of faculty and students of color.

 

Black Girl in Suburbia Screening and Q&A

Featuring Director Melissa Lowery in conversation with Sangita Gopal (Associate Professor, English), Lisa Mazzei (Associate Professor, Education Studies), Veratta Pegram-Floyd (Student Services Assistant Director, Cinema Studies), Doneka Scott (Associate Vice Provost for Student Success)

Schnitzer Cinema Presents: “Same Streets, Different Worlds” and Skype Q&A with Jem Cohen

Apr 12, 7:00 pm
Categories: [] []

Two short films by the great street cinematographer Jem Cohen, NYC Weights and Measures (2005, 5.5 minutes) and Little Flags (2000, 6 minutes), will be accompanied by a selection of episodes from Cohen’s Gravity Hill Newsreels

These short newsreels poetically documented the Occupy Wall Street movement. They demonstrated how the protestors transformed the urban landscape, taking once unremarkable “privately owned public spaces” and transforming them into truly public “agoras” — vibrant, unpredictable, open-air gatherings that cut across socio-economic barriers and made for some of the liveliest “street theater” New York City had ever seen.
